Elementary, my dear Watson! After reading Sign of Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, seventh graders analyze traits and behavior of Sherlock Holmes, Watson, and other important characters. The lesson plan includes a few discussion questions, and would be most useful in the context of a larger Sherlock Holmes unit (the resources for which are available in links).
"Plot the plot" of "The Adventures of the Speckled Band" with your young readers. Take a few days to read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's short story as a class or in pairs, having learners write down what they consider to be the most important plot elements, giving the elements a rating as they go. Have a class discussion and create a visual representation on the board of the plot. Address various learning types with spoken and pictorial representations of story elements.
